I'm trying to determine if my soldering job didn't take or if I'm just using the wrong media. I've been burning 360 backups using my Pioneer 111D 1.19 and 8x DVD+R DL Verbs (MKM-001) with no problems. You can't manually set the book type on Pioneers but they bitset to DVD-ROM anyway. Instead of wasting one of my expensive DL verbs I've tried the following combos with no success: - Pioneer 111D + 8x TDK DVD+R (CMC MAG M01) - Pioneer 111D + 16x Memorex DVD+R (RICHOJPNOR0) - Plextor PX716A + 8x TDK DVD+R - Plextor PX716A + 16x Memorex DVD+R These were all burned at 4x using unscrambled, proper region ISO's on ImgBurn. The Wii quickly gives a "Unable to Read" for all combos except for the Plex+TDK. It spins a lot longer and mostly produces the black screen "Eject and power off - consult the troubleshooting guide" message. That makes me think it's a burner/media problem. So I'm really looking for advice from a Pioneer/WiiKey combo but we can also use this thread as a reference for successful burner/media configs. Something like: Burner and Firmware Version: Media: Burn Speed: UPDATE: Got backups to work after fixing one of my bad solder points on the DVD-ROM. See below for my detailed post.
